settle with Jacksonville, after the Jags whopped them 44-17 last
year. Payton Manning is in great shape, helping the Colts to 3rd
ranked offense in the league with 402.8 yards and 32.8 points on
average. But the Jaguars aren't far back with 7th overall
offense in NFL with 355.2 yards and 20 points per game. And
defensively the two teams are close to each other, but the Colts
will face the second best NFL defense by points allowed - only
11.6 on average per game, which could explain the low spread on
the game. Keep in mind, however, that for Jacksonville DEs
Reggie Hayward and Paul Spicer are only probable, Brent Hawkins
remains questionable and Brian Smith is out. On the Indianapolis
side questionable for Week 7 remain LBs Gary Brackett and Victor
Worsley, as well as receiver Marvin Harrison.
